Default user management on WebSphere Liberty server

By default, when you install IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management applications with WebSphere Liberty, the server is configured to manage users without any external user management system.

The user names and hashed passwords are stored in the JazzInstallDir/server/liberty/servers/clm/conf/basicUserRegistry.xml file. Updates, such as creating a user and changing user passwords or repository permission roles and assigning licenses, are done in the Server Administration page of Jazz™ Team Server by administrators and are automatically written to the XML file. You do not need to edit the file. For more information about user management such as creating users and understanding licenses and access controls, see Managing users.

Important: For the security of the server, make the basicUserRegistry.xml file readable by as few users as possible.
